We heard that Jon Bernthal from The Walking Dead was in talks to join Frank Darabont's new TNT series L.A. Noir. That led to speculation that his character Shane would be killed off in The Walking Dead, and look what happened. The day after that episode aired, it was officially announced that Bernthal had officially been cast in Darbont's new noir series.
Bernthal will play "Joe Teague, the Los Angeles cop at the center of the show that examines corruption in the LAPD and ties between police and underworld figures in the 1940s and '50s." Noir was picked up earlier this month by TNT. The show is based on the book by John Buntin called L.A. Noir: The Struggle For The Soul Of America’s Most Seductive City. It's based on the true story of a decades-long conflict between the LAPD and the city’s criminals. Darabont wrote the script and will helm the show for TNT Original Productions.
Bernthal is a great actor. He was so good in The Walking Dead that I truly hated his character and hoped that he would die. He'll be awesome in L.A. Noir.
